Full description: 

This book examines India-America relations during the period 1942-1962 and critically examines the orthodoxy that assigns a limited role to America in shaping the imagination of post-colonial India. Integrating the security, political and economic elements of the Indo-American relationship it presents a synthesis of India's encounter with the post-war hegemon and looks at the military, economic and political involvement of America during the `transfer of power' from Britain to India.
